Woman struck by Metrobus

By Washington Post editors

A woman standing at a bus stop in Arlington was hit by a Metrobus at 9:54 a.m. Monday morning, ARLnow.com reports.

Metro spokeswoman Taryn McNeil said the unidentified woman apparently leaned in front of the bus as it was approaching the stop on South Buchanan Street. The bus struck her, knocking her down. McNeil said the woman received minor lacerations to her head and was taken to a hospital. It is unclear whether any disciplinary action will be taken against the driver.

@RogerRamjet2 - Uh, I'm not really sure the reason nor the intent with that strange comment. Never the less, hopefully she is okay.

What is going on with Metro, I think they need replace the workers instead of the management.
